It has been projected that prices of goods in the markets across the country are to go higher with some commodities going out of stock following the closure of borders.
Ghanaians have therefore been advised to cut down their expenditure and be economical to avoid wastage in this trial times of the outbreak of Coronavirus.
Development Economist and Lecturer at the University for Development Studies (UDS) Dr. Sumaila Asaah made these observations and recommendations in an interview on A1 Radio,Monday.
According to him, Ghanaians should begin to improvise when the situation gets tougher and be adaptive in order to survive.
“What I will suggest is that,let’s try to cut down our expenditures,let’s cut down our consumption,let’s begin to save as much as we can and as much as possible,please,let’s try to see to it that at least the social network that we have we activate them. Let’s begin to know that we have relatives somewhere who may need our support and that is the only way. When it gets to this level,you have to get back to the social network system that is the only way that can help otherwise,the State at a point in time will have to come in but you know we are dealing with a State that do not have reserves” he said.
